Recreating the shock and excitement from last night.
I have some amazing news!

Birthday gift from The Body Shop
It’s my birthday on Sunday
, so the lovely people at The Body Shop
sent me a voucher to spend in-store, as I am a member of their loyalty card scheme. 10% off in-store and online, special offers through email and then a special gift on your birthday month. Amazing!
For all my new followers & readers;
Hello, Welcome and Thank you!
Now that all the formalities are out of the way, if you’re a social kinda person and fancy joining me somewhere else other than here, then you’re in luck.
For the full list, check out my contact page
, but for the main ones:
Just taking a short hiatus, for this weekend only.
As you probably guessed, it’s work/university related.
With it being the end of term all the work is piling in, and I have a rather large essay on the European Union that needs to be handed in next week, so for now it’s Au Revoir~
See you next week!
Some of you may have noticed that yesterday I changed the look of the blog.
It’s been in the works for a few months, but now it is all finished and I’m so happy with the final result.
I have to give a big shout-out to the wonderful Callie who made me a new graphic. A friend of my sister who I have had the pleasure of knowing for quite a few years, she is so talented and incredibly sweet. I didn’t think she could beat the previous one she made (remember it?) but this is just amazing.
Does it look familiar? If you said yes, than aren’t you a smarty pants. Yes, she modeled it on my birthday purikura – the one I use for my profile picture.
If you like Callie’s work and are interested in your own personal graphic then she is currently taking commissions for only £5 (around $8)!! Leave her a note on her deviant art.
picture not related but very yummy
Sorry for being absent for so long, it’s been almost a week – shocking~
I spent my weekend mainly visiting art museums and eating in fancy restaurants, which was a lovely way to spend my last weekend in Paris
I only have 4 days left here and although I love it, I am looking forward to being back in England
I have classes until Saturday and then I have a ‘farewell picnic’ with my teachers/classmates before I head home in the evening. I’ll also be spending my evenings going out with friends etc. so I am afraid you may have to wait a little longer for any substantial posts from me. ごめん！
I also installed a flag counter on the sidebar today. It’s super fresh though, so it looks a little bare right now but lets hope that it fills up soon! I love finding out where my readers are visiting from
Don’t forget that you can also keep updated with me on my Facebook, Twitter etc and in the mean time…
|What kind of posts do you want to see more of?
If you choose ‘other’ please leave a comment with your suggestion
The point of the project is to “unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.”
So away we go~
My Most Beautiful Post
Kamakura is such a lovely place to visit for the day, so the memories (not only the scenery) of Kamakura are really beautiful to me.
My Most Popular
My 2nd ever post! I translated a quiz from an issue of Ageha which determines your eye type and what kind of make-up would suit it, along with a tutorial. I never expected this to be so popular, especially as it had so few comments.
My Most Controversial
This post was from a CNN-GO article that was based on a rather controversial topic – dressing children like adults. The journalist’s lack of knowledge and poor writing style aside, it raised quite a few questions and discussions.
My Most Helpful
This is also one of my most popular posts and I think one of my most helpful too. I wanted to review Japanese hair dyes (specifically ones aimed at gals) as I know lots of Western gals may want to try them at some point but they don’t know how they will turn out.
A Post Whose Success Surprised Me
At the beginning of this year I felt the need to express my opinions on gal and where I stand with it. I was so happy to see that I wasn’t alone in my thoughts and that so many people offered me their kindness and advice. Thank you all!!
A Post I Feel Didn’t Get The Attention It Deserved
This was only a small series with 2 posts on former EGG models (Hiromi and Natsumi) and where they are today. I was hoping for a positive response to these as I wanted to go further with them but they weren’t as popular as I had hoped.
The Post I’m Most Proud Of
Once again I’m being a bit cheeky and picking a series rather than an individual post, but I have to mention this as I was so proud of the reactions and feedback I got on these. I really wanted to help bring a positive vibe to the Western gal community. I’m actually thinking of carrying this on (when I get some spare time) but with a new look. What do you guys think?
